Brown discharge: Normal vaginal mucus is clear. Brownish discharge is often due to secretion of old debris, like old blood breakdown products or leftover uterine tissue fragments. If this persists, however,I would consult a gynecologist for evaluation and advice.

Depends: If a patient has had surgery, they will most generally form adhesions. This is very true for women who've had cesarean delivery. If the goal is pain reduction, it may be worth have laparoscopy, but if just curious, may not be worth the risk involved having surgery.
